CNN personality Chris Cuomo showed no mercy on Pres. Donald Trump last night.
He pounded Pres. Trump over his refusal to concede the presidential contest. With numerous major media outlets projecting Democrat Joe Biden as the winner.
After he aired a number of clips with ex-Pres. Barack Obama, Cuomo claimed, “That from a president and now we’re hearing from Trump who is no president, he’s a dissident at best, and a revenant in the main, a revenant, a dead man haunting the halls of a country in crisis.”
Then added, “So we get what’s going on. The question is what do we do about it? The first thing is, you gotta keep that energy up, too. You’ve gotta be outraged by this.”
And Cuomo stated, “Because if this dead man walking and his zombie pals in Congress are looking to make this transition into a complete horror show, the only thing that’s going to stop him is the outrage of what they know just bit them in the behinds at the polls.”
Pres. Trump will be declared the winner of this election as Republicans claim?
"Based on what?" asks @chriscuomo, pointing to Republican victories all over the country. "…It doesn't make any sense… and they have no proof of the same." https://t.co/K0Qaj7UGzZ pic.twitter.com/or3ymNZjyE

In addition, Cuomo’s big brother New York Governor Andrew Cuomo blasted Trump on The Howard Stern show Monday. Gov. Cuomo made clear if it wasn’t for his place in office, he probably would have pummeled the president.
He also argued Trump attacked his brother as a proxy assault on the governor. “It’s not funny. First, the mafia stereotype has been such a stain for Italians for so long —and that’s where they go when they want to get cheap and nasty.”
Gov. Cuomo announced, “I said to him, ‘You want to attack me? Attack me. I don’t have a problem with that, but why are you bringing my brother into it? He’s just doing his job.’”
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo stated just weeks ago during a press briefing that he believes that Donald Trump is “actively trying to kill New York City.” Cuomo also shared a long list of grievances about how the state has been treated by the federal government.
Cuomo went on to blast Trump for his refusal to approve or fund projects that he is championing. Two of the projects Cuomo brought up were the proposed AirTrain to LaGuardia Airport and the Second Avenue subway line. He also bashed Trump for failing to provide more federal coronavirus funds for the state and city.
“This is a war on cities. … It is an unsustainable position for the federal government,” Cuomo said during a news briefing. “Either this president will figure it out, or the next president will figure it out. If Congress doesn’t figure it out, there’ll be mayhem in this country and there will be a different Congress in January. That is my political opinion.”
Cuomo went on to criticize Trump’s signing of the Republican-backed cap on the federal tax deduction for state and local taxes, better known as SALT. Cuomo says that SALT targets New York City’s tax base. Cuomo then accused Trump of causing “the COVID outbreak in New York,” adding that the federal ban on travel from Europe was “too little, too late.”
“Gov. Cuomo seems paranoid. Every time New York and New York City have needed something, President Trump has delivered,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said in a statement.“The only people trying to harm New York cities are the liberal politicians and their failed big-government policies.”
New York City was the epicenter of the coronavirus back in March. So far, the virus has infected more than 440,000 people in the state and killed at least 33,000. The state has managed to bring the virus mostly under control, but New York’s death toll still accounts for an estimated 15% of all confirmed COVID-19 deaths in the country, according to John Hopkins.
“And now, no federal funds for New York City and New York State post-COVID,” Cuomo said. “Donald Trump caused the COVID outbreak in New York. Donald Trump caused the COVID outbreak in New York. That is a fact!”
“Trump is actively trying to kill New York City. It’s personal,” Cuomo added Tuesday. “I think it’s psychological. He is trying to kill New York City.”
